Even though Ringling has announced that it will phase out the use of elephants in acts by 2018, their abuse needs to end now.
Also, don't forget that legislation to ban the bullhook (SB716) in the state of California will be heard in the Assembly Committee on Public Safety today on Tuesday, June 30. To find out more about how you can help go here.
